Learn Agile and have fun at the same time! Everything you learn will be via real Agile activities that you do as a team. You’ll form into cross-functional teams, invent your own software product to use as an example for the activites, and become completely immersed in the principles and practices of Agile. There's no actual coding, no computer required, it's just fun activities that anybody can do that show you what being on an Agile team is really like. For anybody involved in development: management, product managers, business analysts, designers, developers, testers, DBAs, technical writers, project managers, etc. Bring an existing team or create a team with other participants during the session. Activities include: * Forming cross-functional, dedicated, co-located teams * Writing actual user stories for your team's "product" * Creating a backlog * Splitting stories * Estimating the stories using planning poker * Planning a release using two iterations of work * Running an Agile implementation simulation * Doing a retrospective on the simulation Throughout the session, you will also have the experience of seeing a demonstration of self-organization on a large scale.
